Takes a smooth route into the airline industry
Revolutionary moisturising sleepwear business has record-breaking year following debut at WTCE
Pyjamas which claim to moisturise you while you sleep? It almost sounds too good to be true. But a London-based business has come up with a product that does just that. And unsurprisingly, the unique company is celebrating its most successful year ever, thanks to its debut appearance at World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE®).
HydraActive uses patented microencapsulation technology to infuse its sleepwear and fabric travel accessories with Aloe Vera, which lightly moisturises the skin during sleep. Following its launch at the exhibition, the company has a number of projects in the pipeline with some of the world’s leading airlines, as Harry Zalk from HydraActive explains:
“It’s a well-known fact that humidity drops from 80% to 10-20% during air travel yet until recently, there were relatively few products that could claim to counter this problem. Realising there was a gap in the market for clothing and accessories that could deliver hydration to the skin and body, we developed the HydraActive range.
“We chose WTCE as the launchpad for the products as we wanted to target senior buyers from the world’s leading airlines. The decision proved to be a good one and we were overwhelmed by both the number of professionals we met and the response to the products. WTCE is renowned globally for the seniority of its visitors so we knew it would be a good place to unveil our products and create some real interest in them – and we’re delighted with the response. As a result, we have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline plus many more enquiries and are returning to the exhibition to (hopefully) repeat this success.”
HydraActive’s story is not unusual. Many companies have reported huge and lucrative deals thanks to their participation in the air and rail industry’s flagship onboard services event. And, the exhibition is hoping to attract even more businesses from the personal care sector.
Passenger comfort has always been a number one priority for airline and rail operators but this is now broadening out to include health and wellbeing. WTCE visitors have shown a real interest in companies, like HydraActive, that can deliver tangible benefits to travellers in terms of the overall experience, so we are encouraging organisations in the wellbeing sector to consider the event as a serious means of developing their business.
